If I had to pick, I would say that 2/28 is my favorite. If I were allowed to combine the best elements of all of the shows, this is what it would look like:

Set I
Morning Dew - 2/28
That's It For The Other One - 3/1
Death Don't Have No Mercy - 3/2
Doin' That Rag - 2/27

Set II
Dupree's Diamond Blues - 3/1
Mountains of the Moon - 2/27
Dark Star - 2/27
St. Stephen - 2/27
The Eleven - 2/28
Turn On Your Lovelight - 2/28
Alligator - 2/28
Drums - 2/28
Jam - 3/2
Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) - 2/28
And We Bid You Goodnight - 3/2

Each show has something wonderful and special to offer. I think if I were to make a compilation of the best of each night, mine would probably look like this...

Morning Dew 2/28
King Bee 2/28
Cryptical>Other One>Cryptical> 3/1
NPC> 3/1
DTRag> 3/1 (maybe splice in 2/27's version instead)
Cosmic Charlie 3/1

Dupree's> 2/27
Mtns of the Moon> 2/27
Dark Star> 2/27
St. Stephen> 2/27
The Eleven> 2/28
Death Don't 2/28
Alligator>Caution, etc 2/28

Maybe throw in a Lovelight as a filler track...any of them would do...

I also personally really like the Dark Star from 2/28. If they had not performed the most perfect Dark Star ever played on 2/27, 2/28 would be my pick for a compilation.
